About 

My name is Janahvi Ramakrishnan and I am an M.Arch grad from Penn State with a bachelor's background in Civil Engg from India.  I am design professional looking for full-time opportunities in the field of Architecture.

I earned a bachelors degree in Civil Engineering in 2012 from India after which I started my Masters program in Civil Engineering at Penn State. Over the course of the first year, I realised that my interests and passion were strongly tied to Architecture, following which I started the M.Arch program in August 2013. My coursework at Penn State has introduced me to a good mix of projects ranging from micro housing, commercial and historical projects all of which have contributed to my skills. I am highly proficient in Revit, AutoCAD, Illustrator, InDesign, Rhino and Photoshop that I possess a good working knowledge of. I have had experience in drafting construction documents on AutoCAD and I have made significant contributions to the projects in several phases of design, documentation, diagramming, project presentations as well 3D study models.

As a design professional with an engineering background, I am able to bring several areas of competencies to projects. I believe that my background in civil engineering adds value to my understanding of architecture.
